1968 Weg zum Nachbarn (Way to the Neighbour)


Published 1968


With Renate Meves and Gerd Hübinger.
A woman looks during lovemaking to the viewer.

"Way to the neighbor" is a ten-minute opus that Lutz Mommartz commented as follows: "A women communicates with the audience." More, in fact, does not happen. The devoted rapture in the face of the actor lets the viewer imagine that this is not a compulsory exercise, but a pleasurable freestyle happening. Lutz Mommartz is the purist among German filmmakers. His scenes focus on the basic elements of movement and rest, of tense and relaxation. He forces with the suggestive power of repeated banality the audience into the rhythm of his cinematic action.
(THOMAS SCHRÖDER, DIE WELT, 12.10.68)

"Way to the neighbor" consists of a shot in a single take close-up of a woman's face.
Expression and movement are clear: The woman is having sex with a man and reaches twice a climax.
(FILM, JAN. 69)

The audience watches in the face of a young female performer the climax of love.
(STERN, 17.11.68)

One short work of art is the face of a girl having two ethereal orgasms, and rather nice, too: Happiness and art no doubt.
(THE OBSERVER, 30.8.70)

I am 59yrs old.I experienced the so called hippie-freelove-woodstock thing..but I cant remembr ever having a woman look at me like this one looked at "ole Gerd". Lucky boy. And I dont really care for porn etc. I dont care to watch other people do what I can do better? But I couldnt take my eyes away from this charming little film. It makes you feel good. Its a tonic for the soul.

This film is brilliant and lovely and unsettling.
The glitches and pops make it perfect.

This is the most beautiful woman i have ever seen. I doubt that I will ever see a person with such lovely expression, and it's great that this is on film.

I must say I m a geek for Richard Kern Experimental 16mm BW and Warhol 16mm BW which could lead me to say that I like this one
but much more than that as I edited it and busted it from my G4 Powerbook into my living room wall while listening to
Tchaikovsky 's Elegia, Serenade For String Orchestra in loop and totally adore it
A 5 stars must see
